I'm originally from Nebraska and one of the traditions we had growing up was to serve chili with cinnamon rolls. I didn't think it was weird until I lived somewhere else. When living elsewhere, I would always see chili served with cornbread. The minute I would mention cinnamon rolls, people thought it was a very strange combination. Whenever I serve chili at home, I still want to pair it with cinnamon rolls. I love the pairing of salty with sweet, and when I was back in Nebraska after college, I even converted a few non-native friends to the tradition. I pictured this bowl of chili with cornbread, however, because I'm still on the hunt for a halfway healthy cinnamon roll recipe. If you have any tips to share, please do so in the comments below.
If you feel so inclined, top with a little sour cream and cilantro. I don't know what it is about chili, but I have a hard time giving up the sour cream.
